While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night.

Its spell is irresistible.

Here is an animated film that finds new beauty in ancient traditions; a film that fights back against the temptation to surrender what little magic this world still has left, and fulfills Cartoon Saloon's promise along the way.

Wolfwalkers does its world-building through emotional voice-work, through lush, hand-drawn animation, and through visual style for days.

There's an ecological parable going on here, no doubt. Girl power is a running theme as well. But I was most knocked out by "Wolfwalkers' " metaphors for the long, sad colonization.
